First veterinary specialty/referral hospital to receive hyperbarics in Houston, Texas
HOUSTON, Oct. 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Gulf Coast Veterinary Specialists (GCVS), centrally located in the heart of Houston's Galleria in Houston, Texas, is the first veterinary specialty/referral hospital to install a small animal hyperbaric oxygen chamber.
GCVS provides the highest quality, most advanced and compassionate care to companion animals and now has the ability to provide hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) to their patients. "Hyperbaric oxygen therapy is an innovative means by which veterinarians can significantly improve animal medical care. The technology holds promise in promoting wound healing and strengthening immune function," states Dr. Paul Manino. When a pet is in the chamber the increased pressure causes the blood plasma and other liquids of the body to absorb much larger quantities of oxygen, greatly increasing oxygen uptake by the cells, tissues, glands, organs, brain and all fluids of the body.
HBOT is a safe, painless and often life-changing treatment used for pets. It is the pressure of the chamber that allows for the increased absorption of the oxygen provided ? more than 4 times the normal amount of oxygen your pet breathes.
